It will tell the tale, first publicized by the Globe, of Mitt Romney’s decision to put his dog in a kennel attached to his station wagon roof for a family trip from Massachusetts to Canada.

McDevitt told Politico his goal is to “get the message out just how callous in temperament Mitt Romney is.”

It has a budget of $1 million.
